Ascent Trip Report

Ascent via Dreamweaver Coulior (aka DW) (5.low, WI1, 45* snow). Descent via The Loft. Totally kicked out route with almost no ice steeper than 45 degrees & minimal rock bands. The first band was 15" and YDS 5.4, the second was 8" and YDS 5.3. Stuck behind a slow party. People everywhere. The easy routes in RMNP should be avoided. Considered a classic by locals this is barely more technical than a walk up coulior.

Pro: 1 axe, crampons & helmet required.
